Choosing from this passel of fresh character posters for The Dark Knight Rises, which would you guess is my favorite?
I have to admit that they are all a little creepy-looking because of the excessive Photoshopping that makes everyone’s skin look plastic. (my pick after the cut)
This is awesomely creepy beyond the telling of it: Test footage of the Xenomorph from Ridley Scott’s original Alien, circa 1978.
Bolaji Badejo, who played the creature, is seen practicing his movements in a Nostromo corridor while wearing only a prop version of the alien head and some shorts. Sure, the music is unsettling on its own, but seeing the long-limbed Badejo (at 7-foot-2) moving slowly and acting curious as the Xeno hunts the crew is quite creepy.
This is one case where “Man in suit!” is not a perjorative.
